The start of the annual Oktoberfest celebration is
still a few weeks away but festivities are already
The first member of the Oktoberfest Royal family was
introduced this evening at the Special Fester Ball.
This year's special fester is Gunner Scraw, a West
Salem High School Graduate.
2015 Festmaster Chuck Roth says this a unique event.
We have those special children that have been a part
of this, their families have been a part of this,
we have special festers from years in the past that
here, that continue to come back year after year because
it's a time for all of them to just have fun.
The Oktoberfest Parade Marshal will be announced next
